Where can I interact with people interested UI design for group blogs?

Is there an interactive site, preferably a wiki, where people can suggest & discuss community-blog design & features? (more inside)

I've a novice programmer who's currently halfway through a Scheme course (although I've aced college C courses and worked through most of K&R). Sounds ambitious, but I'm planning for my first learning project to be a group blog, like this one, using {Perl | PHP} & MySQL.

I've plenty of ideas for feature sets and UI. Some of them are undoubtedly naive/idealistic/inefficient, some ubiquitous and some good & unique. Where can I interact with people who are discussing these kinds of issues?

Clearly, someone needs to start a group blog on this... maybe you're the guy to do it.

I'd be interested in this too.

Many2Many isn't very interactive, but has great posts and occasionally interesting action in the comments.

Gyan, I *need* a collaborative weblog for academic research. I could not find exactly what I am looking for (somewhere between MeFi and MoJo), I am still searching. Contact me if you are interested.

To answer your question, here is a link: opensourceCMS. The "forums" section might help you.

Response by poster: I thought it would come to this (rolling my own, i.e. the group blog to discuss the group blog about to be made). Since I do have a 800MB/40GB account, I'll do it. Suggestions for wiki software? I'm thinking Mediawiki ver. latest ought to do fine, but please correct if need be. I'm going to spend a couple of days to map this out.

MzB, I've been to that site before and it's not what I'm looking for.

fuzz, neither is M2M.

To give a more detailed (but still rough) idea, here's the proposal I put forward on MetaWiki.

Gyan, I'm interested in following your project and maybe even helping out, depending. Email me or post a URL!

Response by poster: I'll plan and set up the wiki site on my account by the end of first week of May.

I'll post a URL.
